This book brings together the latest European and North American research on a series of key topics in the field of women's employment. Drawing on published and easily accessible statistics, it sets the topics in the appropriate policy contexts and systematically appraises them from the viewpoint of the challenges for the management of human resources. The book explores:

occupational segregation
the pay gap
work-life balance
part-time working
women, work and pensions
women in professional occupations
equality and diversity management
women and trade unions.
This is a highly useful book suitable for a wide range of courses including business studies, sociology, social policy and gender studies.
